Woodstock Chimes goes ‘Over the Rainbow’ Musically tuned windchime manufacturer Woodstock Chimes’ latest creation takes inspiration from “The Wizard of Oz.” Its latest chime is tuned to the opening notes of one of the most iconic songs of the 20th century, the Academy Award-winning ballad “Over the Rainbow” from the 1939 movie “The Wizard of Oz.” Composed by Harold Arlen with lyrics by Yip Harburg, the ballad Judy Garland popularized reminds us that “somewhere over the rainbow … dreams that you dare to dream really do come true.” The Over the Rainbow Chime’s removable windcatcher has a rainbow image to exemplify the song. The chime is also one of the first Woodstock Chimes with a second hangtag designed to call attention to the significance of the tuning, so shoppers can understand at a glance what differentiates the chime from others. Measuring 27 inches in overall length, the Over the Rainbow Chime features seven silver aluminum tubes and cherry finish ash wood. Listen to and order a set here.
